The Weisblatt Law Firm, PLLC is fully operational both onsite and remotely to serve all our current and new clients’ legal needs. We are fully compliant with all COVID-19 required and recommended policies. All of our staff and employees are working from home.

THE COURTS: The Courts are “semi” open. The Supreme Court of the State of Texas has not issued a blanket ruling directing the courts. Because of this, each court literally is making its own decisions on what matters will be heard. In Harris County, there are no jury trials right now. The same is true for Fort Bend County. Each court is deciding what matters to hear and how to hear them. Some courts have telephone dockets, some have reduced in person dockets, and some are doing telephone calls. We are monitoring this situation very closely and on a daily basis. If you have something coming up, we will give you instructions in advance what you should do.

THE BOTTOM LINE: We take this situation very seriously. We want and intend to be part of the solution. This problem will resolve eventually. In the meantime, we are all working hard and we are well positioned to continue to provide the high quality, timely, legal services to which you are accustomed.

Please contact me if you have any questions. As always, the main switchboard number is 713-666-1981 and it is always answered by a live person. Thank you for your confidence in us and we sincerely hope that each and every one of you is healthy and safe.

Weisblatt Law: Houston Business Lawyer
Business to Business Collections

Getting paid for providing others with goods or services is the reason that any business exists; and, in many cases, the clients to whom the goods or services are being provided are themselves other businesses. As is the case with any business relationship there are bound to be situations where it becomes difficult for one party to collect from another.

Advising New Businesses

Starting a new business can be an extremely exciting process. Many entrepreneurs and business owners are understandably excited to start promoting and selling their product or service as soon as possible, however, there are many legal issues surrounding the start of a new business.

Business Disputes and Litigation

If you believe that your business has a legal dispute with another party, your first call should be to an experienced business lawyer who handles disputes. An attorney can explore options to resolve the dispute, such as mediation, arbitration, or even a lawsuit.

Business Representation

Every business needs quality legal counsel. While most people are aware that hiring an attorney is advisable when facing litigation or other adversarial matters, fewer consider hiring an attorney simply for his or her advice.

Business Transactions

Many business owners may believe that they need an attorney only if a legal dispute arises and they may have to go to court. However, if you have an experienced business attorney play a key role in negotiating and reviewing your business transactions. Allowing you to avoid many legal disputes before they even start.

Commercial Real Estate

All real estate transactions may be risky, based simply on the commonly high value of the property involved. If something falls through or you sign a contract with unfair terms, the deal could place your entire company in jeopardy.

Commercial Leases

Whenever you are leasing space or equipment from another individual or business, you should sign a lease agreement that sets out the specific terms of the lease in writing. While a main purpose of a lease is to give the property owner certain rights and protections, the terms of the lease are also very important for your business.

Contract Drafting

Almost every business will have the need for some type of contract at one time or another, and many businesses engage in numerous contracts on a regular basis. Every contract that your business enters into should be carefully drafted to make sure all of your business rights are protected, that the contract benefits your business and does not create any unnecessary burdens, costs, or liability.

Corporate Formation

The choice of business entity is among the most important decisions facing a new business and can have significant implications, ranging from tax issues to exposure to personal liability. There are a number of business entities from which to choose. All have different benefits and drawbacks.

Employment Issues

Positive employer-employee relationships are essential to running an efficient and successful business. However, almost every business owner who employs workers will experience a dispute with an employee. While certain disputes can be settled on their own, others may lead either you or the employee to file a formal legal claim.

Real Estate Transactions

Real estate transactions often involve several parties, significant legal issues, and substantial sums of money. This can be true whether the transaction involves an individual buying his or her first home or the purchase of a multi-million dollar commercial property.

A Houston Business Lawyer Can Save Your Business Money

Businesses of every size can experience concrete benefits from the help of a business attorney. The right attorney can help prevent litigation whenever possible, which can protect your bottom line, because litigation can be costly. Consider the following statistics:

  • Small-business owners typically spend $3,000 to $150,000 annually in fees for litigation, according to the Small Business Association. Many of these businesses struggle to recover from the litigation costs, and many owners make major adjustments to operations in order to recover the costs.
  • 36 major corporations in the SBA study spent an average of about $113 million per year on litigation costs. This adds up to $4.1 billion dollars in legal costs and liability that might have been preventable with the right legal representation.

A business lawyer can help you limit liability from the very start by forming the appropriate business entity for your situation.

Overall, the services of the right lawyer can cut costs substantially in the long run. Our firm can assist with legal protections, ongoing guidance, and efficient dispute resolution.
